Toshiba 2TB Canvio Basics USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive
I have a lot of games files, so it was about time to take them off of my computer’s hard drive and move them onto a new external hard drive. I decided to buy the Toshiba Canvio Plus because it could hold all of my files and then some and it wasn’t ridiculously overpriced like a lot of the other ones on the market.
I expected it to take a long time to move all of my files off of my computer and onto the drive, but it honestly didn’t take very long at all. It was pretty much the same speed as when I send big files via email.
Even though the things that I cared about the most when I was looking for a new external hard drive was what went on in the inside of the device, I really like the size of the Canvio Plus because it is extremely portable. I can pretty much treat it like a flash drive because it is so small.
The backup software that comes with the hard drive is fantastic and makes it quick and easy to back up all of my files when I need to. I don’t need to use it very often, but the few times that I have it was quite easy to use.
I don’t know if it was my specific computer or not, but it took me a little while to get it to recognize the drive when I first hooked it up. If it’s my computer, then I have no complaints at all. If it just doesn’t work well with Windows 7 yet, I hope, for future customers’ sake, they include the drivers with the hard drive.
It is pretty rare that I like just about everything about an electronic product, but this one met and exceeded all of my expectations. I will definitely be buying Toshiba hard drives again in the future because I know that they will only get bigger and better.
